Art in Tanzania community medical support team works in Dar es Salaam. In Madele village medical support program we can combine small village clinics with the larger hospital in the near vicinity.

The public health program is mainly focusing to help and educate the village communities with issues related to nutrition, sports and exercise, art therapy, sustainability, and similar fields.

We are looking to open a small neonatal clinic to serve the young mothers in the Madale village. This program needs further plans and to develop fundraising or probable to look for development grants as well.

Tanzanian pharmacies are far from western standards. Specifically, small village pharmacies need training and advocacy to develop their standards.

The medical program also includes HIV/AIDS counseling advocacy, testing, and events for raising awareness.

Your volunteer program is being daily supervised by academic level team leaders. We monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well in your study program.

The outcome of volunteering is to learn to use and to get experience to implement your education in developing country conditions with limited capacitation. Also to better understand the opportunities in a fast-growing economy.

Volunteers work in teams of international students and volunteer professionals. We encourage innovation in the program approach. Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday.

This is an ongoing program so we can adjust your start dates. We accept applications of all students and alumni. Your placement is tailored according to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities. Your program can be from 2 weeks up to 12 months. You can also conduct thesis and related tasks. The common daily tasks include practical fieldwork, planning, reporting, and visibility tasks.

The start and end dates are flexible and can also accommodate other travel arrangements in Tanzania. International flights, student permits, accommodation, and meals are personal costs.

You and your visiting friends can enjoy sustainable tourism, safaris, and local tour options at a low cost.

To book you in and to open your personal account, we need your tentative arrival and departure dates that can be adjusted.
